All are welcome to take a short hike on the Nature Trail behind the library - Hortonville Municipal Building at 531 N Nash St. and enjoy the children's book posted along the trail.

The new book on the trail is: Don't Play with Your Food by Bob Shea!

The experience is free. Visitors are encouraged to share their experience by commenting here on the date of their visit, how many people were in their party, and any comment or suggestion they may have for the project. Photos of you on the trail would be welcomed too. Sponsored by the Hortonville Public Library.
